It sneaks up on you when you wake up in the morning to a slight chill in the air. It looks sunny outside but as you reach your bus stop, your legs are full of goosebumps! Yes folks, this is the Autumn creep! It goes from 35 degrees to 15 quicker than cafes can make their pumpkin spice lattes!  But don't worry - we've got just what you need to say goodbye to summer with a smile. Because who doesn't love a new shopping season? Come check out all these beauties and more in the Wellington Shop this weekend for  Tastes of Wellington West

First up is this cutie that's been popping up all over our Instagram and Pinterest. The Act Three Apparel Marine Dress is a tried and true blue beauty. The rounded collar is so Little House on the Prairie and those pleats at the waist are as crisp as Autumn air! It's comfortable, practical - you can wear this out to the Farmers' Market or to work - and adorable!

Act Three Apparel Marine Dress - $160 - Available at all 3 shops and online.

Next is one of my personal fave outfits. You can't say Fall without lumberjack plaid and what better way to wear it than in this sweet button front skirt from Birds of North America? It sits nice and high on the waist, perfect for tucking in blouses (or pairing with our favourite Hornero Crop top!).  To go along with it is the Betina Lou Agatha top. Made from a bamboo knit, this little black top is complete with a sharp white collar. Seriously, we cannot get enough of collars this season! 

Betina Lou Agatha Sweater - $160, available at all thee shops! Birds of North America Cotinga Skirt - $142, available at West, Toronto, and online. 
To add a little extra edge to this outfit, these new Coconuts by Matisse Stillwater Oxfords are la piece de resistance. These super rad shoes have the height of creepers, amazing traction (you won't be slipping in these puppies!) and are just badass. 
Matisse Black StillWater Oxfords $95. Available at all three shops and online.

You can't go wrong with a denim dress in the Fall. This Birds of North America dress has the most perfect fit! It is cinched at the waist with a slight bit of flare to create an A-line. It buttons all the way up, showcasing a pointed collar. It has nice long sleeves that are gathered ever so slightly for that feminine touch. This dress is just the ultimate! It also comes in a light blue faded denim. 
Birds of North America Hoatzin Dark Denim Dress - $218 - available at West, Toronto and online in the Dark Denim. Available in Faded denim at Dal, Toronto and online.
These burgundy booties are the perfect match for this dress. Montreal line Matisse Footwear is the newest addition to the Victoire family. They are designed in Montreal, and are Vegan - no leather is involved but they do have a suede look. These ankle boots have a real sixties vibe - the pointed toe and block heel is *just* right. The two tone deep wine colour has a textured pattern on the ankle panel for contrast. We are smitten!
Matisse Abbott Bootie in Wine - $115 - available at all three locations and online. Also available in Black.

Last but not least is the dress made from our velvet dreams. The Vivienne dress from Toronto's Act Three Apparel is so luxurious. It has a beautiful full skirt that drapes into thick folds, and the velvet is just shiny enough that it feels really glamorous! Hitting the dance floor in this cutie is a must! 

Act Three Apparel Vivienne Dress - $195 - Available at all three locations and online!
 So swing by and check out all these new fall digs so you're prepared when the chill hits!
